Crocs: revenue up by 9.4%
The US-based footwear company famous for its clogs announced second quarter results marked by revenue growth. Full year outlook is being increased as a result of the first half performance
Andrew Rees, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We had a terrific quarter, as demand for our product and brand heat continued to climb. With strong revenue growth and better than expected gross margins, we expanded our operating margin 200 basis points to approximately 13% of sales and grew our diluted earnings per share 57% compared to last year’s second quarter. We expect our revenue growth in the back half of the year to significantly outpace the first half; accordingly, we are increasing our full year outlook.”

Second Quarter Results

Revenue totalled 358.9 million US dollars, growing by 9.4% over the second quarter of 2018, or 12.5% on a constant currency basis. Store closures reduced Crocs revenues by approximately 6 million US dollars. Wholesale revenues grew by 9.4%, e-commerce revenues grew by 18.0%, and retail comparable store sales grew by 11.8%.

The company expects third quarter 2019 revenue to be negatively impacted by approximately 2 million US dollars of currency changes and approximately 3 million US dollars resulting from store closures.
